Greenwich Village Townhouses Manhattan New York

One of the most desirable Downtown Manhattan neighborhood is Greenwich Village. 

This neighborhood is known as one of the cultural centers of New York City, Greenwich Village has a long standing tradition for artists, musicians, American counter culture and a center for learning.  Many universities and colleges such New York University and university related residences surround the famous Washington Square.  Quite arguably the heart of Greenwich Village, Washington Square Park is located at the foot of Fifth Avenue.  The Washington Arch and fountain are center pieces to any visit to Greenwich Village.

Townhouses is one of the housing inventory in Manhattan New York besides condo and cooperatives. And in Greenwich Village, there are many tree lined streets with townhouses.

Greenwich Village Townhouses are a direct reflection and product of the neighborhood's rich and historically significant status.  To learn about the townhouses you have to look back at the roots and history of the neighborhood.  With over 400 years of history behind it, many of the townhouses for sale in Greenwich Village are a reflection of a certain style of architecture from the period they were built.

Greenwich Village townhouse--the Greek Revival Townhouses that are found bordering the North Side of Washington Square Park, these date back to the 1830's.  Or a Federal Style Townhouse built in the 1840s, or a 25 foot  wide Italianate single family home.

 

Most of the Greenwich Village townhouses has a specific story of who they were built for and how they transferred hands throughout the years. They were built in a way with specific architectural characteristics that you will not find today.  Many townhouses have been meticulously renovated and brought back to their original splendor and enhanced with today's modern conveniences.  Air Conditioning, Elevators, Private Roof Top Decks, Screening Rooms, Security Features, were not an available feature back in the 19th Century.

 

Being of the desirable nature and the limited quantity of Greenwich Village Townhouses, the pricing for a townhouse has dramatically increased. Pricing starts around $5,000,000 USD for a mixed use or townhouse featuring multiple apartments within the property.  For a single family, fully renovated, asking prices can be upwards of $20,000,000.

 

Depending on what you are looking for, if you want a complete turn key with every possible convenience all wrapped up in a historically significant home with much of it's architectural elements restored, you will be at the higher end of the range.  If you would like to possibly live in a single apartment within a townhouse you will be at a far less price point.
